Notes
Blackstone "The World's Master Magician" Cachet Envelope

From the envelope: Harry Blackstone (1885-1965) born Henry Bouton in Chicago, Illinois, wowed audiences with such classic illusuins as the Buzz Saw, Dancing Handkerchief and the floating Light Bulb. His full evening show of "1001 Wonders" was classical. His career started in the days of Vaudeville, lasting through to the age of Television. Blackstone featured fast moving magic with sense of humor, glamour and excitement that established him as America's top stage magician. He used many beautiful posters to promote his show. Released on November 5, 1994 at Yankee Gathering V.
